Clara and John

Her name is Clara. She is very much alive and is a thriving 2 year old.

I imagine that’s the answer to your biggest question. And I have no idea how to thank you or how to really begin the conversation with you. I’ve been waiting a long time to be allowed to contact you. But I also haven’t known what I wanted to say to you or what you’d want to know or say to us. It’s kind of impossible to truly express our gratitude, and I also do not know what you have thought about how this moment would go.

QUALITY OF LIFE

Racing Saves Lives
Four time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon has been a tremendous partner – helping to bring hope and healing to countless patients & their families – through his personal support and the work of the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. Partnerships like these make our work possible. Jeff has seen firsthand the impact of Be The Match’s work, having met with many transplant recipients.Each life saved through a transplant is an inspiration both to Jeff and – most importantly – to those patients still waiting for their transplant. Thanks to Jeff’s extraordinary generosity, the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation has launched a matching gift challenge – matching dollar for dollar the first $100,000 donated to Be The Match before August 31.“I know my financial gifts to Be The Match Foundation translate directly into the gift of life for these patients,” Jeff says.
